THE IMPORTANT PLACE Two apprentices of Jesus, who were brothers, had a desire to sit in the most important places next to Jesus in His final kingdom, however Jesus responded, "I DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE WHO WILL SIT AT MY RIGHT AND MY LEFT. THESE PLACES BELONG TO THOSE FOR WHOM MY FATHER HAS PREPARED THEM" [Mt 20:23 GN]. Yes, God gave Jesus "ALL AUTHORITY" [Mt 28:18] yet Jesus gives us the example of following what God wants. Many consider being able to spend eternity with God and His son Jesus important enough without being concerned about places of importance. Are you looking forward to eternal life?
